CONFIRMED: Driverless cars to hit actual British roads by end of year

Big O

Re: One thing they still have to sort out....

"You take the number of vehicles in the field (A) and multiply it by the

out-of-court settlement (C). A times B times C equals X. If X is less

than the cost of a recall, we don't do one."

Seems apt!
